Futurist Jack Uldrich to Prep Dairy Execs for 2018 at Dairy Forum

Jan 03, 2018
“It can seem like major changes appear out of nowhere, but disruptive trends and technologies usually give us warning – if we’re paying attention,” said Jack Uldrich, global futurist and author, in his recent blog. Uldrich, who helps business leaders prepare for unpredictable futures, last month highlighted 10 game-changing technologies on his radar for 2018. He promises to provide more insights on the future to dairy leaders attending Dairy Forum 2018, Jan. 21-24 in Palm Desert, California.

“Most major advancements begin at the edges, outside of where we are focused,” Uldrich said. He predicts that several new technologies, from rice that grows in seawater to atom-powered computer software, will affect a myriad of industries in 2018.

In his Dairy Forum presentation, “Prepare for an Unpredictable Future,” Uldrich will dive deeper to explore innovations that could affect the dairy industry. After painting a picture of what the world may look like in a few short years, he will offer upbeat and practical insights on future trends, emerging technologies, change management and transformational leadership.
